Half Marathon Training Week 9: Run 32

Wednesday run! This time I tried something different: hills! I’ve never done a hill workout on the treadmill before, but as there are only three weeks left to prepare for my HM I wanted to give it a try and make things a little bit harder.

I tried a running workout Gil Cramer, Nike Running Expert, suggested to me:

Slow run for 5 minutes

3 mins 6% incline
1 min recovery
3 mins 7% incline
1 min recovery
3 mins 8% incline
1 min recovery
3 mins 9% incline
1 min recovery
3 mins 10% incline
1 min recovery
3 mins 9% incline
1 min recovery
3 mins 8% incline
1 min recovery
3 mins 7% incline
1 min recovery
3 mins 6% incline

5 mins cool down

My pace was mostly 7.5 – I reduced speed when incline went up, but speeded up a little for the last minute of every hills interval.

It was really, really though 🙂 After one minutes of the first hill I already felt that I was absolutely not used to running uphill that much! And to be honest, this is something I defininately have to work on, because hills caused me trouble several times through different races.

Next run will be on friday: Tempo Play (intervals)!
